The Aboriginal Carbon Foundation (AbCF) catalyses life-changing, community prosperity, through carbon farming. Our aim is to build wealth for Traditional Owners, implementing carbon projects that demonstrate environmental, social and cultural core benefits, through the ethical trade of carbon credits. We are now seeking expressions of interest from Aboriginal owned or controlled organisations to participate in demonstration projects on Aboriginal owned or managed lands in NSW (i.e. Freehold Land, Indigenous Pastoral Land, Indigenous Protected Areas and/or native title claimed on Crown Lands).


The demonstration projects aim to draw on Indigenous knowledge systems to support a return to pre-invasion land management (which includes the use of cultural fire) with carbon farming. Carbon projects with verified environmental, social, economic and cultural core benefits generate a premium price within carbon markets. Should you wish to be involved, we ask that you prepare and submit an Expression of Interest Submission detailing the below points, and submit this by close of business Friday December 3, 2021.

  • The Aboriginal organisation who will partner with AbCF in the development of the demonstration project and then own the carbon project, including information about its governance structure, links to the local community and the organisation’s long-term aspirations.
  • The location, tenure and history of the land where the project will be based.
  • The organisation and its representatives’ access to the land where the project will be based, and any agreements that support this access for the purpose of carbon farming project activities.
  • The local contact person (and contact details) for the project.

The AbCF is a member of the Indigenous Carbon Industry Network (ICIN), Carbon Market Institute (CMI) and is a Founding signatory to the Australian Carbon Industry Voluntary Code of Conduct.
